Paper Abstract

In this work we report Single Molecule (SM) microscopy studies of binding events between individual surface immobilized antibodies and fluorescent antigens using Total Internal Reflection (TIR) microscopy. Specific binding events of single biotin-conjugated 1quantum dots to anti-biotin antibodies, immobilized on an amine-coated cover glass using a heterobifunctional photo-reactive cross-linker were observed. The methodology of calculating the binding affinity (dissociation constant) from the time series of 2-D images is described.
